Building your classroom community is critical for promoting mathematical understanding.

In Thinking Together, veteran teachers Rozlynn Dance and Tessa Kaplan explore nine beliefs that lead to a powerful community of learners. When students are part of a classroom where they feel valued and included, they are more likely to take risks, ask questions, and grow exponentially as mathematicians.

In this sample, you'll read about: 

  • key learning factors, including perseverance, cooperative learning, and mathematical discourse
  • questions that elementary teachers should be asking daily about their math instruction
  • an overview of how these nine core beliefs can begin transforming your classroom culture.

All nine beliefs are explored in greater depth throughout the book, offering guidance for highlighting and encouraging each one every day.
